Due to the capacity of the Institute’s exhibit floor, we are only able to accommodate groups of up to 75 students. Larger groups may be accommodated with multiple bookings: please contact us directly at email@example.com.
Field trips must be scheduled at least three (3) weeks in advance.
Please be aware that leaving a voicemail or sending an email does not represent a confirmed reservation. A confirmation letter from the reservations office is required as verification of your group’s reservation. Please allow up to one week for confirmation.
For the safety of students and the enjoyment of other guests, the Institute requires that student groups be accompanied at all times by an appropriate number of adult teachers or chaperones. Chaperones are expected to ensure that students behave appropriately and are mindful of other guests visiting the museum.
Pre-K & Kindergarten (Ages 6 and Under)
A chaperone-to-student ratio of 1:5 is required for Pre-K through Kindergarten classes. For every five (5) students, there should be one adult actively monitoring the group.
Grades 1–12 (Ages 6 and Up)
A chaperone-to-student ratio of 1:10 is required for grade levels 1 through 12. For every ten (10) students, there should be one adult actively monitoring the group.
Field trip reservations come with priority access to our bus parking lot. The entrance to this lot is located off of the frontage road for HWY 281/I-37. Detailed directions are provided with your booking confirmation.
Please confirm the bus parking location with your bus driver(s). To ensure that our front lot remains available for other visitors, we are unable to allow buses to wait there during your field trip, and the limited space makes it difficult for buses to exit the lot.
Admission to ITC is by donation. Suggested donation is $3 per student and $7 per chaperone.
The ITC accepts cash via in-person donation stations and credit cards via an online donation platform. Look for donation stations with QR codes at the museum entrance. You may also donate through giving.utsa.edu/itc.
A group visit reservation guarantees access to our outdoor picnic area. Indoor lunch facilities are not available.
